Forest Grove High named model school

Tapped - School officials will share their 'best practices' at June 22-25 conference in Orlando, Florida

Forest Grove High School has been selected as one of 23 model high schools for 2008 by the International Center for Leadership in Education.

Officials from the selected schools will share their 'best practices' at the 16th annual Model Schools Conference June 22-25 in Orlando, Fla.

The conference is the nation's premier event for K-12 education reform, said Connie Potter, the Forest Grove School District's director of communications and volunteers. Each year, the conference attracts thousands of educators who come to learn about exemplary elementary, middle, high school and career and technical education programs.

ICLE president Willard Daggett announced the names of model schools.

'We are delighted that these exceptional schools will be sharing their best practices, which mirror the International Center's mission of providing a rigorous and relevant education for all students,' said Daggett.

As a model school, FGHS will become a member of the Successful Practices Network. Through the network, Forest Grove High's professional staff will exchange best instructional practices, successful methods and peer support with other member schools, Potter said.

The ICLE, established in 1991 and headquartered inn Rexford, N.Y., is one of the most influential education consulting companies in America. More information is available at www.leadered.com.
